According to the Liverpool Echo, Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs interested in signing Callum Wright from Blackburn Rovers.

The 17-year-old central midfielder is yet to make his first-team debut for the League One side; however he has impressed at both under-18 and under-23 level, scoring regularly and impressing not only with his innate talent but also his versatility.

While tipped to shine long-term in the centre of the park, Wright can also operate on either wing or as a right-back if required, and that could go a long way to explaining why Tottenham are monitoring his progress.

Spurs have made a habit of signing some of the most talented young players in the country, with Dele Alli the perfect example and, if Wright does make the move to North London, he will no doubt be hoping to follow a similar path to the England international.

Alli went from League One to the national team in no time at all, but with Wright yet to make his breakthrough at Blackburn he would very much be an investment for the future.

Tottenham are said to have already registered their interest in a player also tracked by Everton, Leicester City and Stoke City, so he is certainly in demand.
